Receiver Bowe joins Chiefs' long injury list

McClatchy-Tribune

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Five Chiefs starters, including wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, safety Eric Berry and running back Jamaal Charles, did not practice Tuesday.

The Chiefs said Bowe, who caught five passes in last Sunday's preseason game at Carolina, had a quadriceps injury.

Charles did not make the trip to Carolina after bruising his foot while moving out of the dorms at the end of training camp last week at Missouri Western in St. Joseph. And Berry has sat out both preseason games because of a lingering heel injury.

Also, starting slot receiver Junior Hemingway suffered a hip injury in the Carolina game, and inside linebacker Joe Mays suffered a wrist injury. Others who did not practice included linebacker Josh Martin, quadriceps; and tackle Ryan McKee, who hurt his knee following an interception in the Carolina game.

Fisher keeps battling

Offensive tackle Eric Fisher is not discouraged by some of the struggles he has encountered in the first two preseason games.

"Coming off two surgeries, you have to go through stuff and get stronger every day," said Fisher, who underwent surgeries on his shoulder and for a sports hernia in the off-season. "That's what I'm going through. That's what the preseason is for and what I'm out here doing.

"Sometimes after a major surgery, your shoulder is going to get a little tired, your body is going to get a little tired, and you have to fight through that. As you recover, you get stronger. That's where I am right now."

No excuses for the line

Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson did not use the lack of experience of his offensive line, which averages 23.8 years of age, for problems it had in the game at Carolina.

Three starting offensive linemen and a tight end were called for penalties and allowed two sacks.

"We don't make any excuses for them," Pederson said. "The emphasis comes with the huddle. The quarterback has to emphasize the snap count in the huddle and it starts with him and then the center.

"Guys just have to focus in on detail. They get in the heat of the battle and sometimes they get a little fatigued and into the game, but they still have to concentrate and understand how we're snapping the ball, when we're snapping the ball. We need to eliminate those types of penalties, the holding penalties and obviously the sacks and turnovers."

Chiefs partner with KCP&L

The Chiefs signed a long-term partnership agreement with Kansas City Power and Light, in which both organizations will put an emphasis on renewable energy solutions.

The club had 308 solar panels installed at its Chiefs facilities, including 82 atop the west end of the Scout Investments Club Level at Arrowhead Stadium, 108 atop the training complex and 108 on the grounds surrounding the practice facility. The club said the panels will generate enough solar power to help offset 66 metric tons of carbon dioxide every year, or the equivalent to the average electrical consumption of 8.2 homes for one year.
